If the address on the package appears to be just a typo, I merely record it as the correct addy. IF it is a case of a business that has moved, yet some of their suppliers still haven't changed the addy in their system I hit 'em with a correction as well as telling the receiver that they need to let the shipper know the new addy AGAIN. I record PO Boxes as a PO Box.How do you guys and gals approach address corrections out on route? Do you zap the shipper with them, or just leave the matter alone?
Correct me if I'm wrong but is an address correction $10.00 now? Wow! That seems like it could be a real cash cow.
Uhm, no. Only delivery intercept, which will automatically address correct ANY package at a physical scan.. Otherwise manual address corrections are not charged....of course if the package is returned, it ain't coming back.
Delivery intercept does not A/C a package, but simply instructs you not to deliver the package and return it to the center.
About Address Correction from UPS.com
Address Correction: If UPS is unable to deliver any package as addressed by the shipper, or if the package has an incorrect or incomplete address, UPS will determine and make reasonable efforts, to be determined in its sole discretion, to secure the correct or complete address. An address validated by UPS may be incorrect or incomplete for purposes of completing delivery and may be corrected by UPS. If the correct or complete address is secured, UPS, at its sole discretion, will attempt delivery, the shipper will be provided with the correct or complete address, and an additional charge will be assessed.
- All UPS Air Services and UPS 3 Day Select: $10.00
- UPS Ground: $6.00
i usually don't zap them because there is no incentive for us drivers, we give the company an extra 10 bucks if they can't give us some more.
I'm a friend/T 22.3 and I do clerical. Intercepts are prerecorded in UDC AS400 upon scanning. I'm fairly certain that this is not a regional thing, either. When a clerk scans an intercept, the information's already there. Instead of manually performing the DCR, the intercept does it's magic. Neat little system, actually.
I have a question. How did an address correction get into a package car to begin with?? If the preloader reads the address and something doesn't look right wouldn't the package go to a return clerk for correction??

First you have to have a preloader that actually pays attention to the addresses (mine loads pkg's that I can't scan or read the Z#, or read the address,) and then you have to have a clerk that will actually do their job. Our morning clerk will send pkg's back to preload and write on the pkg good addy even though the preloader knows that it's not good. We have 1 preloader that has actually been there for more that a year (6 yrs now) and he is the only one that knows what he's doing as far as preloading. I love delivering either one of the routes he loads.I have a question. How did an address correction get into a package car to begin with??
